I am asked on a regular basis, ‘why would anyone want to do a boudoir session?’ and ‘what would I even do with these images?’. There is a common misconception that women want boudoir sessions to have a curated collection of naked images of their body. That vanity has somehow weaseled its way into that persons life and they are craving attention. But this could not be further than the truth. In fact, it’s the exact opposite in every single case. Women come in for a boudoir session because they are celebrating who they are in any season of their life. With every story comes inspiration and a drive to provide the most beautiful and incredible photos of yourself you’ll ever have.
It would be an honor to work with you and celebrate YOU.
I am currently booking 2-3 months in advance so it is never to ‘early’ to book your session. Simply fill out the contact form here on my website and I will be in touch. We will start off with a short phone consultation to answer any questions you may have about the session, wardrobe, my hair and makeup team, packages and products, and the studio. This consult will be followed with an online reservation form and contract and then a detailed session planning packet will be sent to you. Through this process we both get to know each other a bit before our session together. This eases client nerves and allows me to make sure I deliver exactly what you are looking for in a session. It would be lovely to hear from you!
There are so many different looks when it comes to choosing the right lingerie for your session. Pick pieces that inspire you and allow your confidence to shine. Some of my favorite places to look for boudoir inspired clothing are Amazon (yes, Amazon!), Asos, and Bluebella. My favorite color palette is neutral and complimentary to your skin tone. Ivory, blush, nude/tan, mauve, black, and peach are some of my recommendations for sessions.
